Coombe Dean Take-On the Italian Alps!

Our students are about to begin an eight day trek in the Italian Alps; from the foot of the Matterhorn to the foot of Mont Blanc.

All members have previously completed the Ten Tors Challenge, and are now ready to move onto bigger things – the Alps beckons!

After a gruelling journey that started at 3am this morning, the team are now fed, watered and are having an early night, ready for the first stage tomorrow.

As a qualified International Mountain Leader and the school’s Ten Tors Manager, I’m leading the group – with support from Mrs Hodges and Miss Wright – both who are Teachers at Coombe Dean.

As I type, everyone is raring to go. There is currently overnight thunder and rain, which will likely clear some of the heat for tomorrow’s trek.

Please join me in wishing every success to our intrepid explorers!
